The museum has come to life, in a new place, in the newly renovated exposition of the exhibition depository, in addition to many novelties and unique collectors' deeds. At the ceremonial opening, which took place on 18 June 2021, the Certificate of Creation of the Czech record "The largest collection of potties and toilets" issued in June 2021 by the Dobrý den Pelhřimov Agency was handed over.
We want to focus especially on all those who are still interested in this area of human hygiene, not only from a historical point of view, but with an overlap into the environmental future, incredible connections, many other attractions with the possibility of not only classical tours, but also lectures and workshops for all generations.
The exhibition depository is easily accessible by public transport or by private arrival with good parking options, in addition to the bike path and the possibility of good food in the immediate vicinity. The tour is suitable not only for individual visitors, but also for schools, suburban camps, senior programs, etc. The book "TOILETS, POTS AND OTHER CONTEXT" is on sale in the Czech version on our e-shop and the English version should be published by Christmas this year.
We are still preparing an ONLINE TOUR, which will hopefully be launched soon. In the electronic museum you will find about 2600 exhibits from the period from the 15th century to the present. Here you can see potties of various shapes, uses and materials, urination vessels, trays, toilets, armchairs, carriage toilets and ceramic toilets. The collection also includes literature, postcards, paintings, jokes and many other small curiosities and personal hygiene items.
